At Get Fresh Farms, we want to change the way food is grown. One tomato, one fish, one delicious head of lettuce at a time. We just don't think that it makes sense to have your tomatoes picked half-ripe and trucked in from thousands of miles away. So we grow our produce right here in Fort Wayne, Indiana.
Since our climate is less than perfect for growing produce year-round, we grow our food in a greenhouse. In order to keep our environmental footprint as small as possible we grow our food in an aquaponics system.
In a nutshell, this means that we raise fish and plants in a closed-loop system. The fish provide the nutrients for the plants. The plants clean the water for the fish. And since fish don't like pesticides and plants don't like antibiotics, we don't use either. In fact, our food is Certified Organic.
If this sounds like your kind of food, here's how you can get your hands on some. If you're a local restaurant interested in fish or produce, give us a call or send us an email.
Our produce is also available to the general public through the Fort Wayne Farmers Market during winter, and the Barr Street market through the summer months. (see our events page)
